            All but Cases 110, 155, 179 and 335 have been referred to in the text of the Report (see Chronology and Index for references). The information on these four cases is included in the Appendix, together with the original news account, for comparison. In addition, information obtained from Mrs. Dave Johnson, widow of the witness involved in Case 794, is included.
            Case 110 - From the Tucson Arizona Daily Citizen, 7/4/47: "Among Tucsonans who have reported seeing the mysterious discs in the sky are Mr. and Mrs. Charles O. Weaver, 708 East 1st St. Weaver, a restaurant proprietor, said he noticed 9 or 10 of the discs in the sky about 1:30 p.m. last Sunday (6/29) while standing near North Stone and East Alameda Streets. He and Mrs. Weaver then went home to obtain a better look at the mysterious objects with binoculars."
    Dr. McDonald learned from Weaver that at the time of his observation he operated the San Carlos Restaurant in downtown Tucson. He and his wife had stepped out the back door of their restaurant on the day of the sighting and, looking toward the northeast, saw a number of objects maneuvering over the Catalina Mountains. Weaver had the impression that the objects were somewhat to the south of the mountains and not much more than 2,000 feet above the ridge. They were almost too small to be able to tell their shape clearly, but Weaver had the impression that the objects were elliptical, or saucer-shaped. They were silvery, with a shiny finish, and the Weavers saw the glint of light from them when they flashed in the sun. He recalled there being six or seven objects (compare with "9 or 10" in news account). The objects were more or less hovering in one spot, and Weaver thought of driving to his mother's home (not his, as reported in the local papers) to get binoculars. This took him about five minutes and the objects were still in view when he got there. He found that the binoculars were of little assistance, and he had trouble finding the objects due to the small field of view, so he continued to watch them with the naked eye.
    Shortly after he had gotten the binoculars, the objects began climbing rapidly towards the southeast. In about two minutes they were lost to view, moving much faster than normal aircraft. "I have never seen anything like it before or since," he told McDonald, and added that he and his wife have been watching the skies ever since but have not seen any more UFOs. He was quite definite that the objects he saw were no conventional objects.
                Case 155 - From the Spokane Daily Chronicle, 7/2/47: "Flying discs were reported seen over Lewiston this morning and five persons said they had seen the objects. Their appearance, however, was described as long and narrow, flat on the ends and narrow in the middle, like airplane propellers.
                                          Appendix 2
               Mrs. Lloyd Bergh went out on the porch of her home at 13th Avenue just off 14th Street at about 8:15 a.m. She said she has read a lot about the 'discs' lately and always looks over the sky when she is outside. She said she immediately spotted four.
                "Mrs. Bergh said she called her husband and an 11-year-old daughter, who watched with a 9-year-old neighbor girl. The Berghs notified Mrs. Bob Sergeant next door, who came out in time to see only one of the objects before they disappeared.
                "Mrs. Bergh watched them through colored glasses and said they were all in a group, and were white and shiny. They were very high, she said, much higher than airplanes usually fly over the area. She said that they were going at a steady speed and apparently came in from the northwest and left in a generally southeasterly direction. They would dip and roll, but they did not appear to be spinning, she said."
                At the time of the sighting, the Bergh’s told Dr. McDonald, they lived at 1408 13th Avenue. Both Mr. and Mrs. Bergh, whom Dr. McDonald interviewed separately, said that the time of the sighting was about 7:00 a.m. (Mr. Bergh was due at work at 8:00 a.m.) Mrs. Bergh was hanging out clothes at the time. She said she had been quite skeptical of the reports of "discs" and wondered why, if everyone else was seeing them, she hadn't, so she resolved to keep an eye on the sky. It was with this in mind that she stepped outside and, looking up, saw the objects.
                Both of the Bergh’s emphasized that there were three, not four, objects, and that they in no way resembled "airplane propellers." Neither had seen the article in the Spokane paper and they could not imagine how such a description had gotten into the account. They said the objects were disc-shaped, like "two hub-caps face to face." Mr. Bergh emphasized that they were thicker in the middle. They were silvery (not white) and glinted in the sun. It was a beautifully clear day and although there were scattered clouds, at no time did the objects go in front or behind them.
Both witnesses stated that the discs flew with their planes vertical, like a wheel. (This description turns up in a number of reports.) That attitude may have given Mrs. Bergh the impression that the objects were rolling along but Mr. Bergh had no such impression and thought that his wife was wrong about that. The three discs moved along at a fairly high speed, maintaining a uniform distance from each other, but occasionally dipping down and up as if moving along the surface of a wave.
They were first seen to the southwest (not the northwest), high in altitude and angular elevation. They moved on an easterly course and finally disappeared to the southeast. Mrs. Bergh had time to get her sunglasses, which enabled her to watch the objects for a longer period than the others--a total duration of about three minutes.
                                        Appendix 3
             In that time, the Berghs were joined by their 11-year-old daughter, and a friend who was visiting the neighbors; Mr. and Mrs. Elijah Joliff, neighbors from several houses away; and, finally, Mrs. Bob Sergeant, from next door, who saw very little. The Bergh’s recollections, according to Dr. McDonald, seemed to be quite clear.
               Case 179 - From the Omaha World-Herald, 7/4/47: "An Omaha woman believes the city was visited Thursday (7/3) by 'flying saucers.' Mrs. Fred C. Nelson, 5530 Mayberry Avenue, said they appeared to be the size of dinner plates. She saw three of them about 3:30 a.m. They darted from the north and veered to the east. The objects were visible for about a second. Mrs. Nelson said they glowed with the same brilliance and color as the full moon. Two of them were round, and the third one was oval, as though it might be tilted."
Mrs. Nelson was 53 at the time of the sighting, and according to Dr. McDonald, she still has a vivid recollection of the incident. There are several differences, however, between her recollections and the news account. She told Dr. McDonald that she had awakened during the early morning and looked out her bedroom window, next to her bed, to see what the weather was like. The window was open. She saw two (not three) "oval-shaped things" coming out of the north. They made a 90-degree turn without banking and veered off toward the east, where they disappeared. The total duration was only a few seconds. She had a clear, unobstructed view of them.
Mrs. Nelson said the outlines of the objects were distinct, not hazy, and they had the color of the moon, glowing with a pale white light. She said they appeared to be larger than the angular size of the full moon and looked oval when first seen; after their abrupt turn, their apparent projected shape changed and they appeared elliptical, symmetric fore and aft. No wings were visible and she said she had seen them so plainly that had there been any wings she certainly would have seen them. They did not reflect light, nor did they flicker or blink. But after they veered to the east they disappeared abruptly from sight, without "going behind anything." She agreed that they might have "blinked out."
Mrs. Nelson called the Omaha World-Herald later to find out if anyone else had reported seeing them, hoping to get a confirmation of her sighting. No other witnesses came forward. She recalled that at the time many people were laughing at those who reported "flying saucers." She remarked that had she seen them about a week later, she would definitely not have reported them because by that time the ridicule was very pronounced. She blamed the newspapers for this. Dr. McDonald said Mrs. Nelson was quite definite about her sighting without being contentious about it, and found her account of it coherent and articulate.
            Case 335 - From the Boise Idaho Daily Statesman, 7/6/47: "Four flying discs were seen over Boise yesterday (7/5). Henry Vanderhoef, Jr., at his father's home at 1011 No. 9th Street, said he, his wife, his father, his mother, 6 or 7 neighbors, and Richard Shirley, saw three of the discs.
                                                    Appendix 4
"Vanderhoef said he saw vapor trails in the northwest, which merged into a cloud and then dissipated rapidly. From the cloud, before it thinned out, he said, there came a silver-colored, round object which wavered about, and then streaked away to the northwest.
"A minute or so later, he said, two more discs were seen coming from the cloud. They also wavered, then straightened out on a swift course to the northwest. The weather bureau said conditions at that hour, Saturday, would have permitted the formation and rapid dissolution of clouds at an altitude of 14,500 feet -- but, said the Weather Bureau, clouds formed normally would not vanish as swiftly as indicated by Vanderhoef."
Dr. McDonald learned from Vanderhoef that he had been with his wife at his father's home during the afternoon, relaxing outside with a group of neighbors. He was the first one to spot the objects. The day was perfectly clear and he saw the three objects together, nor did they come from or enter any clouds, as mentioned in the press accounts.
Their shape was round and probably disc-like, as they appeared to flutter and reflect the sunlight. Vanderhoef estimated their altitude at from 20,000 feet to 30,000 feet and said they moved overhead at times, and were seen at other times off in the distance. Sometimes they flew in formation and at other times they maneuvered alone, occasionally fluttering. At times they appeared to emit brief pulses of something resembling vapor trails, as they moved erratically. These did not stream out steadily from the objects but only came out as puffs, following sharp maneuvers. It was these violent maneuvers that struck the observer as so peculiar: he remarked that the G-forces must have been tremendous, and said the objects could not have been manned because of the sharp right-angle turns and sudden altitude changes. They were in view for close to 45 minutes.
Vanderhoef phoned the Statesman to see if they could send out a press photographer to take pictures of the objects, but by the time they got around to it, it was too late. Vanderhoef was in the Army Air Corps from 1939 to 1946, enlisted for four years and an engineering officer with the Eighth Air Force for four years. During the war he had been bombed out of his hotel during the V-2 attacks on England and, knowing that type of missile, was entirely satisfied that the objects he saw on July 5, 1947, were not any conventional aircraft. A pilot, he had worked together with Dave Johnson after the war in forming the Idaho National Guard. (Johnson was not the reporter who interviewed him for a story of his sighting.) He had known Kenneth Arnold for more than a year and felt that Arnold's story of his sighting was reliable.
Currently, Vanderhoef is employed as an investigator with the Idaho Department of Law Enforcement. He hold's a private pilot's license and occasionally flies.
                                                   Appendix 5
             Case 794 - Dave Johnson Report:  The witness died in 1964 but Dr. McDonald was able to contact his widow.  Mrs. Johnson still lives in Boise. She was not able to amplify the details of her husband's report, but she did send Dr. McDonald numerous clippings from Idaho papers that he had saved.  She did mention, however, that her husband dropped all of his interest in flying saucers quite abruptly after some Army Air Corps personnel had advised him to "lay off."  He had been an Air Corps pilot and was active in the Idaho National Guard, which left him no choice but compliance.  Mrs. Johnson briefly described a sighting she made in 1953, and said she knew the Arnolds quite well, adding that Kenneth Arnold had become quite reluctant to talk about the subject. She regarded his original sighting as reliable.
